Yes, of course, thank you! I realized my mistake after reviewing page 8.

Tracking travel seems to be unnecessary. As far as I can tell the countdown timer starts when the PCs near Woodsedge Lodge. Did I miss something?

Can we run a slot 0 for GMs that will be running tables at the event?

Grand Lodge

If we get the PDF early I'll be sooo happy :)

Grand Lodge

This is what I've been waiting for. Thank you!

Most of the characters were great. There were a lot of small moments that made the film really enjoyable. It's the overall story, those nonsensical bad guy motives and the final battle that still have me scratching my head.

Grand Lodge

Thanks, Mike!

Is the shifting rune creature's "rejuvenation" ability meant to be "regeneration?" This creature appears in area A3. Magical Wards and on the statblock appears on page 71.

It seems to me that a boosted benefit remains on an Aid Token until that boosted benefit is used. In other words, if a table boosts "Burst of Healing" or "Provide Spellcasting" then the next table can use "Timely Inspiration" without discharging the boosted benefit. Anyone interpret this otherwise?

Grand Lodge

This is tearfully sweet.

Many of the GMs headed to PaizoCon are hitting preparations hard. I plan to spend a lot of hours with this adventure over the next week and will post helpful content here. Please join me!

Grand Lodge

Yup, waiting for subscriptions.

You all are amazing! Thank you for your attentiveness and efforts :)

Grand Lodge 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Oregon—Portland aka xebeche

Thank you! The only opportunity I had to see that information again was to take the survey a 7th time.

Grand Lodge 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Oregon—Portland aka xebeche

When is the last chance for players to take the survey? I'm want to give our community accurate information. I'm not seeing it here, but I could be blind.

We are still in discussions about how Starfinder subscription(s) might operate. As soon as we are ready to discuss subscriptions, I am sure we will broadcast it loudly from the rooftops. In the meantime, if you want a copy of Starfinder books, I would say to go ahead and preorder them. In the next few months before the launch at Gen Con, if there is a subscription that you wish to sign up for, the process to switch from preorder copy to subscription copy will be made as easy and painless as possible for you.

I encourage you to consider a Starfinder subscription that includes most, or all, Starfinder products. Last I heard the product releases were not going to be as rigorous as Pathfinder. Those of us who want to Subscribe probably want to collect all the things!

I love the idea of prestige classes, but often find they do not compare to continuing with (and flavoring) the base classes. I assume that I'm not alone in this perception. Will Paths of Righteous be any different?

Not only do I love that there is a 3–7 Evergreen, but one of the fine lines will be loved by many a GM: "Don't fret though, as GMs just need to prepare what they plan to run, not every option."

Grand Lodge

Erik, I'm sooo excited to receive this set. The only thing that disappointed me about the rope trick mini is that I'll only get one in a case. Hopefully I can snag another when singles pop up.

Grand Lodge

I suspect they will fix this for you. I had a similar issue with my order of the previous set. My subscription for Deadly Foes says 279.99.

If anyone has time to put together a poster/flyer template, please share with the rest of us! Venues in our area should have something hung up to show off their support for the benefit to be available, but I'm interested to hear if anyone else has other ideas for promotion.

We run about five tables every Friday night at our FLGS. It's important to us to have this program run smoothly and unambiguously. Our retailer was onboard immediately. With the help of our other leaders I've put together a handout that can be dispersed to each table. We have wet-erase pens on hand so I'll be laminating this tonight. It is designed to be double-sided so that folks can track monies on one side and review rules/benefits on the other.

Retail Incentive Program Handout

So if I have a table and 3 players have a $10 receipt do they then get the Cheaper Healing, Recover from Wounds, and Bonus Wealth?

If I have 2 players both with a $5 receipt does that trigger the normal reward?

This is not clear to me either. I was under the impression that a single player could benefit from Cheaper Healing, Recover from Wounds or Bonus Wealth—not all three. It was pointed out to me that it is intended that three $10 receipts gets you all three benefits. Can we get clarification this?

As written, it sounds like only receipts of $10, or greater, count. The spirit of the program seems that folks can pool any receipts to reach $50. If seven players had receipts of $7.15 it meets the $50 amount. I assume that it is intended that these folks benefit from the Retail Incentive Program.

Grand Lodge 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Oregon—Portland aka xebeche

Is Harder to Kill intended to be a static benefit? Can it be used more than once?

More plants, please :)

Stupid Tea Set.

Greater heroism lasts minutes per level. It may be harsh, but that's how long that effect lasts at my table.

Hey folks,

We have the new pregenerated characters ready to debut at Gen Con 2016. We'll see you and the alchemist, cavalier, inquisitor, magus, oracle, summoner, vigilante, and witch iconic characters there!

I thought this had appeared in this week's blog, but I appear to have left it out among all the other new releases.

Do you have an ETA on when they will be available for download? Will other pregens be updated and require replacement?

He is not terribly dangerous and it is unlikely that anyone will die. His spells primarily delay, paralyze, confuse, and tickle the NPCs. I agree with David's interpretation suggestions!

I got an Ebay order of various minis delivered today and I immediately started work on my custom Dr. Zaweeb for Gencon. I still need to add some more accents and then paint him up, to say nothing of the mini that I was going to take the legs off of that was not included in my order...

Stay tuned for more, same Aspis-time, same Aspis-channel!

This is fantastic! Make sure to keep an eye on pacing so you don't have to rush the final encounter. Let the PCs marvel in glory at your creation :)

Folks,

I'm glad the resources are seeing use. There's been a lot of good stuff to come out of this thread. I hope this goes well at GenCon as a result :)

You can see the light gray triangles on the map. Each has a ladder on the north side (see compass rose).

Quote:
In order to maximize space in the room, most of the lab equipment is kept suspended in the air. By manipulating controls along the north partition, a creature can raise, lower, or rotate any number of these fixtures. In this way, the room can be reconfigured from a small library to a lab to an operating room. Kar Zaweeb has left an unseen servant here and can command it to raise and lower any of the features whose forms are outlined on the map.

Grand Lodge 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Oregon—Portland aka xebeche

The dotted lines represent fixtures that are suspended on the ceiling and can be lowered to obstruct the PC's movement.

Third largest?! Sounds like I may need to attend Origins next year. Where would one go for advice regarding the convention and lodging?

I have a question about the "Joliryn's Foe" boon on the Chronicle. The character that I gave this GM credit to also has the "Spoils of the Siege (Joliryn)" boon from Serpent's Rise, so he has access to the Wrathful Ring of Spell Storing. He's also a 7th level Wizard with an Arcane Bonded Ring (no properties, yet). Can I upgrade his masterwork ring to a Wrathful Ring of Spell Storing by paying half of the 16,000gp price? He meets all of the requirements to do so, as far as I can tell.

I can offer no solid argument why this ring should behave any differently than a minor ring of spell storing, which has a cost half that of its price. Even if no one official chimes in, I doubt any GM would raise an eyebrow during an audit.

In Portland, OR we were running up to 1-2 Core tables per week. There is far less demand, but definite advantages that have already been mentioned. More than anything, it has been an important tool for easing newer GMs into the role.
